These fixtures are subtle and can be directional, and can be connected to dimmer switches to give a range of light from subtly dim to full brightness to illuminate an entire room.
Here the lighting has a specific function. Large marble wall paneling is illuminated in the living room, spots over the kitchen island, hidden lighting and lamps hanging over the table. Multimedia is active and the speakers play classical music. Suitable for both expressive cooking and the family gathering around the table.
Directional sconces pointing upwards or downwards can focus on architectural elements on your home, and draw attention to exterior niches and plantings around your home.
